Bottle at Absalon hotel, Copenhagen. Very dark brown colour, moderate off-white to beige head. Aroma and flavour of brown malts and moderately roasted malts, not too sweet. Fairly tasty, but more hops would be desirable. (Yes, I know it is probably historically correct as it is, but I still want more hops!)
